TriStar Electric Earns BBB Accreditation


For more than two decades, TriStar Electric has proudly served the people of Maryland, as well as Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Washington DC. and is now a part of the Better Business Bureau.

This week, TriStar Electric announced its recent accreditation by the BBB serving Metro Washington DC and Eastern Pennsylvania! We strive to provide unsurpassed quality and excellence to every one of our clients. TriStar Electric is committed to the Better Business Bureau’s standards of trust!

According to a recent Better Business Bureau study by Nielsen, nearly 83% of U.S. consumers are more likely to make a purchase from a business that displays the BBB accreditation seal. The BBB is a resource for the public, providing trustworthy, unbiased information about businesses.

“We are pleased to be a BBB Accredited Business because we value building trust with our consumers,” said Dave Crawford, TriStar Electric’s principal owner, “Our BBB Accreditation gives our customers confidence in our commitment to maintaining high ethical standards of conduct.”

BBB Accredited Businesses must adhere to the BBB’s Code of Business Practices, a comprehensive set of policies, procedures, and best practices for representing trustworthiness in the marketplace. The code is built on the BBB Standards for Trust, which calls for building trust, embodying integrity, advertising honestly, being transparent, honoring promises, being responsive and safeguarding privacy.

The History of the Better Business Bureau

Truth in advertising has always been valued at the core of what makes a business great. Before 1880, no restraints on advertisers existed except as personal ethics. When advertising, media responsibility in the public interest was not something businesses were overly concerned with. In 1880, however, an article was published in the Farm Journal declaring

We believe, through careful inquiry, that any advertisements in this paper are signed by trustworthy persons, and to prove our faith by works we will make good to subscribers any loss sustained by trusting advertisers who prove to be deliberate swindlers. Rogues shall not ply their trade at the expense of our readers, who are our friends, through the medium of these columns. Let this be understood by everybody now and henceforth.

Trustful advertising to move goods and services, from this moment forward, became something of value. It was from this philosophy that the Better Business Bureau was born.
